Subject: One of the best "feel good" shows ever -- perfect culminating note to Obama's historic nomination acceptance!
the interviews with Rosey Grier and Wendell Pierce are just fantastic. Ms. Goodman sets just the right tone for questioning and the interviewees really light up and shine on how moved and excited they are by Obama.

Thanks goodness, too, for Micheal Eric Dyson -- as always he's a breath of unbelievably fresh and intelligent air with a critical thinking perspective and outlook. He smartly discusses Obama's policies and what this candidacy means in historical context.

This program made feel so good and hopeful that I had to share it with others and listen to it twice through -- the second time on a long drive from SF to LA... 8-)
